IMG Sports allows its clients to be creative with their marketing and promotions are typically where the widest variety of marketing exists. On-field contests, couponing at the gates, video-board features, and vending rights are all just the tip of the iceberg.
Southern Miss has the luxury of a scoreboard with a video feature at both football and baseball stadiums. This allows sponsors to put their logo in front of football capacity crowd of 33,000 or a Pete Taylor Park crowd of 4,000 plus while being associated with a feature that intrigues and interests the crowd or an instant replay of a close call.
This is always interesting and frequently captivates the crowd with some of the most creative ideas in sports. Sponsors have given away cash prizes for kicking field goals and airline tickets for answering a trivia question correctly. On the other end of the spectrum, another sponsor gave the school's mascot "Seymour" an extreme makeover, and unveiled his new look at the opening game to another roar from the crowd. With on-field promotions, the sponsor has unlimited creativity and has the ability to get the crowd into the act.
You can put your logo or message on just about anything you can dream up. IMG Sports also gives sponsors the right to distribute items such as thundersticks (shown left), coupons, rally towels, etc. Your company can also partner up for a setup in or outside of the stadium to allow your product or message to reach the crowds of people entering, tailgating, and leaving the campus.
